1st machine delivered filter holder & filter would not fit – too big for opening. 2nd m/c filter holder & filter just fitted but unacceptably tight. Filter cups rubbed down with fine abrasive block and now acceptable fit. Obviously quality control problems at the factory. M/c makes good coffee now and i’m happy with it, but not many purchasers likey to do what i did to make it acceptable to use.

Brilliant coffee maker; great price. Bought it on which’s recommendation. It took about 10 days to arrive as it must have come direct from the factory in italy. Was about £90, far cheaper than many other of similar capability. It’s great for one or 2 people and you can make a mean cappuchino in under 2 mins after turning on. Its not ideal for doing large quantities as every cup has to have the grounds flushed out and new coffee added. I did not want to buy a cartridge machine as i like the barrista style of making it and this works fine.

Great machine terrible instructions. This is a great little coffee machine but it is clearly sold in lots of countries so to save money on the instructions they are given visually – like a little comic strip but they are really not adequate. What a pity that we have had to go through so much trial and error. My husband resorted to picking up tips from other users on the internet which is fine but i think the company should provide adequate instructions.

It works and produces an espresso coffee with a good crema. But the coffee holder is extremely tight, taking a lot of force to attach and unattach (my wife cannot do it) and the strength and flavour of coffee produced is a bit weak despite maximum compression of coffee in the holder. It was a “which” best buy but i’m disappointed.

Bought this as a present for my dad and he has been using it every day fof the last two months and it is fabulous. The coffee is very good and the milk frother does the job well.

Makes very good capuccinnos. This is a very good coffee maker. Having had 2 of the previous models, both of which leaked badly everywhere (water holder, the steam valve which didn’t hang over the drip tray and dripped for several hours after use and then a pool of water coming from somewhere underneath), my wife didn’t want another, but it made excellent coffee. “which” recommended this one and it has been perfect so far (2 months). The coffee is again excellent, it froths well and the steam valve can be turned back over the trip tray. I would have awarded it 5*, but it rattles rather badly while you are using it. It doesn’t matter and you get used to it. So far, i would recommend it to anyone. Besten Delonghi EC250.B Pump Espresso Machine

An advocate of excellent coffee (in my case strong black americano), i have owned one ‘pod’ type machine and tasted from many others owned by friends and family. Impressed by none yet, mine was sold within weeks after spending far too much on every pod available to my machine. then, having read a report from a well-known analytical magazine. I decided to give it a chance. My cafetiere was ok, but i needed something a little special. Clearly, ground coffee advertised as being for ‘all’ machines is not an option with a pressure pumped machine so beware. The coffee needed is ground to a much finer powder. Grind your own beans as i do but never with a bladed grinder, it must be a proper ‘crusher’ machine.

Great tasting coffee but beware of water leaks. I bought this machine somewhere else about 3 months ago and here is what i can tell you. I make espresso using lavazza oro and cappuccino using cheaper bellarom espresso (lidl brand). Mind i am not an expert barista but can tell the difference between good and bad tasting coffee. This machine makes good coffee :)2. Milk frother is quite good and does what it says on the box. Mind you won’t be able to follow advice you can find on the internet as this machine does not have the simple steam pipe you will find in professional machines but some sort multi-part frothing attachment. It makes good froth when using 3.

Machine seems to work ok but instructions could be better. I believe we are now using it correctly. The coffee so far has been good but i would prefer it a bit stronger. I assume we need to change the coffee blend. More advice on what type of coffee to use and what varieties give a certain flavour would have been useful. Is a colombian blend weak or strong. Does the machine need a fine or coarse ground coffee or will any ground coffee do?.

Simple to use, versatile as it takes pods and ground coffee, and quicker to make a really great cup of coffee than you would think.

Good quality and excellent price. Really impressed with how easy it is to use. Instructions could be clearer and base a bit heavier for stability but otherwise excellent.

I’ve had this product for about a year now and it’s getting quite leaky. There is also a minor electrical fault which makes the lights at the front go a bit random occasionally. Still makes a fine cappuccino though. I guess i’ve got to know it quite well and can deal with these minor issues — and they are only minor.

This coffee machine makes great coffee, latte, cappuccino. It is not too bulky and not too noisy either.

Krups EA 826E Aluminium-black, Great value for an excellent machine

Troubleshooting tips would be useful. . Arrived immediately and very perfectly packed. It is neat and matches on the worksurface conveniently, but does splash milk droplets on to the surface at the side of the steamer nozzle which desires to be wiped right after each and every use, (not a …
